Synopsis

From two South Carolina-bred brothers comes the ground-breaking cookbook for new Southern cooking: The Lee Bros. Simple, Fresh, Southern. Matt and Ted Lee were raised on long-simmered greens, slow-smoked meats, and deep-fried everything. But after years of traveling as journalists and with farm fresh foods more available than ever, Matt and Ted have combined the old with the new, infusing family recipes with bright flavors. Using crisp produce, lighter cooking methods, and surprising combinations, these are recipes to make any night of the week.

Excerpt

Lemon-Glazed Sweet Potatoes

Preparation time: 5 minutes

Cooking time: 50 minutes

- 2 pounds sweet potatoes (about 3 medium potatoes)
- 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
- 2 tablespoons dark brown sugar
- 1/2 cup fresh lemon juice (from about 3 lemons)
- 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/8 teaspoon kosher salt

Heat the oven to 325°F.

Peel the sweet potatoes and cut them into 1-inch-thick slices. Grease a 9-x-13-inch baking dish with the butter. Arrange the sweet potato disks in a single layer in the pan. Mix the brown sugar, lemon juice, cinnamon, and salt in a small bowl, and pour the glaze mixture evenly over the potatoes.

Cover the baking dish with aluminum foil, and bake until the potatoes are fork-tender, about 45 minutes. Remove the foil and cook for about 5 more minutes, until the glaze has thickened and become syrupy. Serve immediately. (The glazed sweet potatoes can be cooked in advance, stored in the refrigerator, and reheated in a warm oven.)

The Lee Bros. are truly the best at interpreting the last remaining great regional American cuisine—that of our southern states—for the rest of us.  The magnificent collection of simple deliciousness makes me want to jump in the kitchen and get jiggy with a cold watermelon margarita.”
Mario Batali
